Vintage furniture and home goods shop Pearl Cottage is returning to Southold for an extended stay. Specializing in a mix of old and new with decidedly “creamy and dreamy” aesthetic with modern Scandinavian influences, the new Main Road shop is currently undergoing renovations ahead of a planned Memorial Day opening.

If the name rings a bell, it might be because Pearl Cottage first made its North Fork debut in the fall of 2016, in the form of a pop-up shop at the former Reichert Family Center on the Main Road in Southold. Though it only lasted a couple months, owners and sisters Laura Hansen and Susan Hansen Fasano had a feeling they’d be bringing the business back.

“We immediately fell in love with the area,” Susan said. “It is a warm, friendly community. We knew we wanted to come back.” (more…)

There’s a new restaurant in Southold with a menu that melds made-from-scratch Tex-Mex fare with authentic Guatemalan flair. 

Latin Fuzion Restaurant, located in the former Robert’s Jewelers space in Feather Hill Commons, opens Sunday, just in time for Mother’s Day. Its offerings include a little bit of everything, from standard Mexican dishes like tacos and quesadillas to buffalo chicken wraps and barbecue pulled pork and daily Guatemalan specialties.

Is there a sweeter sign that summer is coming than the return of North Fork strawberries?

Juicy, ripe and red; these berries typically begin making an appearance on local farm stands starting in late May or early June, but you won’t have to wait quite that long if you visit Catapano Farms in Southold.
